Kenyans have taken to twitter to react to the Deputy President William Ruto’s confession that Weston Hotel sits on a land that was acquired illegally.
Dr Ruto made the confessions during an interview with a BBC journalist. However, Ruto defended himself saying that he bought the land using legal procedures unaware that the original owner had acquired it illegally.
Below are some of reactions by Kenyans on twitter.
DP Ruto is always innocent.
He innocently bought Weston Hotel LEGALLY from some someone who acquired it ILLEGALLY; and it is possible that he innocently won the Deputy Presidency from someone who stole it.
